  • Data Centres Many high-end regional data centres are established in Hong Kong thanks to the city’s sophisticated high-tech infrastructure, tech professionals, reliable power supply, and robust enforcement of data privacy and security. Companies from different industries outsource their data storage and management, creating opportunities for data centre operators. 
  • Big Data & Analytics – The city has long been positioned as a data hub, hosting several data-driven businesses from the world of finance, logistics, trade and retail. The HKSAR Government has opened up government data for public use with a dedicated data portal and the Hong Kong Hospital Authority will soon establish a Big Data Analytics Platform to support policies and facilitate biotechnological research. 
  • Cloud Technology – Hong Kong is a leading hub for cloud technology and acts as a launchpad for expansion into Mainland China and international markets. The city enjoys high demand for cloud-based services, especially from the finance and manufacturing industries. Further demand has been driven by the Government’s proposal to deliver e-services and information via cloud computing. 
  • Software & Services – The industry is a key component of Hong Kong’s ICT sector and experiences strong demand from SMEs and multinationals. Many of the world’s leading software services companies base their regional operations in the city to mirror their client’s preferences. Hong Kong’s rigorous protection of intellectual property and tech-savvy consumers provide companies with the perfect testbed for Mainland China. 
  • Telecommunications – Hong Kong’s telecommunications market has been liberalised and there are no restrictions on foreign ownership or limits to the number of market operators. Advanced infrastructure and a high take-up of services has placed Hong Kong at the forefront of telecommunications.
